Alright, here goes another experiment! Iâve long wanted to start uploading podcasts of class discussions whenever it was appropriate to do so and this is the first attempt. Now, of course the audio is iffy because Iâm using my smartphoneâs voice recorded to record the class but I think youâll agree itâs surprisingly good. If this becomes successful, Iâll consider investing in some more serious gear but thatâs unlikely to happen this year.
In this discussion, I speak about the use of the âN-wordâ and how it starts to lead us deeper into not only the plot but some of the themes presented in the novel. As you listen, please take notes or add to the notes you took in class (in case you missed anything) and if you have questions please write them down! You can email them to me or just bring them up in class.
Also, Iâd really like your feedback on this. Do you like this? Is it helpful? Explain your thoughts, feelings, etc. on this and donât be afraid to give suggestions. Iâm VERY interested in what you have to say about this new way of extending class. You can comment on this post and Iâll read them.
